A French retailer has began to take pre-orders for AMD’s top-of-the-range Ryzen 9 7950X3D processor with 3D V-Cache, stories VideoCardz. The CPU itemizing is for €800 ($720 with out VAT), greater than the official MSRP. After all that is previous to the retail launch, which is about for February 28, so it isn’t too stunning to see some profiteering over what is going to presumably be a better demand, restricted amount half for the preliminary rollout.
Rue Du Commerce (opens in new tab) at present sells AMD’s 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X processor with out 3D V-Cache, however with overclocking assist, for €715, so it is logical that the extra highly effective Ryzen 9 7950X3D with 3D V-Cache can also be dearer. In the meantime, the retailer says that it’ll ship the CPU on March 16, 2023, which is a bit later than AMD’s official launch date of its new Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs.
AMD intends to launch three Ryzen 7000 X3D-series processors based mostly on the Zen 4 microarchitecture and enhanced with a further 64MB of L3 3D V-Cache: the eight-core Ryzen 7 7800X3D with 104MB of L2+L3 cache, 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X3D with 140MB of L2+L3 cache, and 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X3D with 144MB of L2+L3 cache. US MSRPs have been set at $449, $599, and $699, respectively.

The corporate will place these CPUs as its greatest CPUs for gaming, as the extra cache ought to considerably enhance efficiency in workloads that rely on reminiscence bandwidth and single-thread efficiency. That features gaming, or no less than some video games — AMD could have a whitelist of which video games ought to run on the CCD with additional cache vs. the CCD with out the additional cache however with greater clocks.
Sadly, additional 3D V-Cache limits overclockability of AMD’s Ryzen CPUs, so X3D processors will include locked multiplier and customers will solely be capable of overclock the reminiscence of those items. PBO will nonetheless be obtainable, nonetheless, as will undervolting, so it ought to nonetheless be doable to eke out barely greater efficiency.
AMD will promote its Ryzen 7 7800X3D for $449 however it will not be obtainable till April. The Ryzen 9 7900X3D will likely be obtainable at a really useful value of $599, whereas the range-topping Ryzen 9 7950X3D will value $699. Whether or not avenue costs will likely be greater stays to be seen.
